Poll: Is the auto gearbox VFR1200 the future?

1 of 1

Honda’s radical new automatic transmission VFR1200F DCT has already impressed in isolation – but how good is it back-to-back with the conventional version? In next week’s MCN we’re going to find out.

The questions we wanted to answer were: what benefits or disadvantages does DCT offer compared to a tradtional gearbox? and does motorcycling need this car-derived system? 

To find out we’re testing both on road and test strip and in the hands of both novices and experienced testers – read the full report in the June 23 issue of MCN.  

But what do you think? Would you ever be tempted by an automatic bike, tourer or otherwise? Have your say in our poll.
